Renaissance2 is an accelerator of social, business and cultural innovation, co-created by leaders with deep experience of social change, scientific, technological and business innovation. We are registered as a not-for-profit organization and funded by donations, member subscriptions, event fees and publications.
The Mission of Renaissance2 is to accelerate open-source innovation between business design, the scientific and technology communities, governments and NGO’s to address the most challenging issues facing human civilization today.
Our strategic partners work together to shape the future design and direction of R2 through their participation in two major events and virtual collaboration between these events, using online tools including web-based video-conferencing and sophisticated online innovation forums. This model will evolve to serve as an ongoing open system of social, business and technological innovation for the next decade.
